Here are pictures from my latest shoot at the Williams waterwall and adjacent skyscraper located in uptown Houston, the wall is 64 feet high and the skyscraper has 64 stories.

Abarbarian mentioned that the earlier threads I posted on Oyster Creek Park and Trail as well as Window Shopping (shooting) took a very long time to load due to hi res 10MP images, therefore I have now uploaded them on a gallery so it should not be a problem as far as loading is concerned.:)

For those interested in its history, here is the link to the article on wikipedia.

Any comments are welcome :D

I love the second photo of the tree lined path - the straight line of the path contrasts nicely with the curvy branches :)

Excellent photos as always!

That camera is really a cracker, I am beginning to get to know it better. I am basically working around its limitations so as not to overwhelm it :lol:

I have almost tweaked the camera to an extent that I do not need to spend any time on PP, that is how I prefer it, old school shall we say?

Whenever I get free time will try to do a shoot and post them here.:)

Becky:


Yes I love the unusual pattern of trees, them being living things make the pictures come alive if properly composed and exposed. :D

Thank you to both for your comment/feedback :cheers:

More super photos! I agree with Becky, about the tree pics, which are particularly attractive and pleasing.

The Waterwall and huge tower building are very imposing edifices (and very interesting to read about in your Wiki-link.)

It's great to be able to sightsee with you, as you re-explore Houston with your camera. Most enjoyable Quad, thank you for sharing. Already ooking forward to more, when you get the time, of course. :D

Why not set up a free Atpic account. Setting up your main gallery is a bit of a fiddle but subsequent galleries are a breeze using the stock settings.
You can make galleries private or public.
Uploading to the site is a breeze with Filezilla.
You can post full resolution images so folks can see all the detail

Have a read of the FAQ I recon it will suit you to a T :thumb:
